While this work does current astronomy for a hint,

It is the work that philosophy of the Buddhism was made by a backbone.

With human existence in this space and the meaning?

And with the meaning of the existence of the unit in the terrestrial world?

It progresses while asking them.

What does a body carry within itself? What does a body remember?

International co-production opportunities always increase artists’ creativity, especially when this is a long-term opportunity and not just a week or two. This is one the ways in which this creative project differs from others. The team of choreographers from four different parts of the world began working together in December 2013 in Chiangmai, Thailand, where a month-long series of rehearsals was followed by a working performance. The second series of rehearsals, which also lasted for month, and the premier are taking place in Budapest, in the National Dance Theatre. But the project doesn’t stop here! According to plans, another month of co-operative work will precede the Mexican tour, which will provide further opportunities for the re-interpretation of the piece.

Leftover Shadow
The question: what is memory, time and space.
Our bodies always live together with the new possibility and impossibility.

It means our bodies live together with our death.
Our bodies live in becomingness with nothingness.

The workshops of Ko MUROBUSHI showed great interest all around the world. Several times Batarita (first in 2004 as a Dance Weber) also took part in the master’s courses, which was then followed by the performance of Ko MUROBUSHI at the 1st Butoh and Performing Arts Festival in Budapest in 2009. Here the two artists had the chance to get into closer contact with each other.

In 2010 they met again in Vienna, where as an effect of a long conversation the idea of the coproduction appeared. They started to work on the duet „Leftover Shadow” in Paris in 2010, which was then finalized during the rehearsals right before the Festival in

Yoshito Ohno & Batarita

Premier: 2009, National Dance Theatre, Budapest, Hungary
Other performance: 2011, Merlin Theater, Budapest, Hungary

Yoshito Ohno, born as son of Kazuo Ohno. Trained for modern dance under his father in his youth. First appeared on stage in Kinjiki (Forbidden Colors) in 1959, choreographed by Tatsumi Hijikata. It was regarded as one of the earliest piece of Butoh. In the 60s, joined in Hijikata’s series of performances and in 1969 premiered the solo performance. After some years of not performing his come back to the stage was in 1985 in the Dead Sea directed by Hijikata, in collaboration with Kazuo Ohno, his father. In 1989 Dead Sea was presented also in IMMT Festival in Budapest. Recently, apart from the solo activities, also collaborated with Lucie Gregoire (Canada) and Batarita (Hungary), In 2010, premiered “Promising Morning” in the Kazuo Ohno Festival 2010, collaborated with Wuppertal Tanztheater’s Eddie Martinez and Julie Stanzak.

A part of the piece is based on the choreography by Tatsumi Hijikata for Yoshito Ohno when butoh was born, who later adopted, transformed it according to his own experiences. The peculiarity of the Budapest premiere in 2009 was that this time Yoshito Ohno together with Batarita attempted to reinterpret the solo made 40 years ago. 
“How does human body gain power in the most lost situations? Where do these energies lead from and lead to? What does it mean to hit upon the truth of nonsense?”
